journey to the west

It’s been a long time since I thought about the story of Monkey Magic. The TV show and the cartoon. I had to read a synopsis to remember what the story was all about. And tonight I saw the musical acrobatic version. The creators of Gorillaz were involved in the music, even though all the songs were in Chinese. They also had some artistic influence as well. The acrobatics were amazing, those women were so flexible and strong. My favourite scene was when they meet the spider woman and they acrobats are up in the silks. It was sensual and dramatic. Very exciting to watch, and yes I admit to perhaps nodding off a bit in the first scene. The David H. Koch Theater has amazing plush red velvet seats, strict rules about food and drinks inside the theater and overall an amazing interior.
